Disappointing doesn't really catch it tho. If it would be just about the
sync functionality: so be it. But crippling the API usage on a level
that rips out especially things like the safe browsing functionality as
well places chromium knowingly and forcefully into a position that
doesn't make it viable to be distributed to users.

I'm incredibly mad that his is literally a situation where the open
source world is soaked up and in return a big clear "screw you guys, we
don't care" sign is raised. Well played, exploiting a monopoly position
like this and literally cheating on the open source community all around

PS: firefox is affected by safe browsing keys as well.
